New releases for 17 June 2016

17 June sees the release of what founder Michael Gira says will be the last (sob) Swans album, The Glowing Man, which contains all the epicness (if that’s a word) we have become accustomed to. We also get the remix version of Public Service Broadcasting’s monumentally successful The Race For Space, available here on indies only orange vinyl if that’s your thing. On The Dreaming Room, Laura Mvula manages the unlikely combination of being fearless, meditative, soulful and buoyant all at once. The Low Anthem return after a five-year gap with the brilliant Eyeland, which is multi-dimensional Americana and all the better for it. Both Jake Bugg and Red Hot Chili Peppers provide more of what we love on their new albums On My One and The Getaway.

Album of the week is, however, the wonderful self-titled album from Neko Case, k.d. lang and Laura Veirs. When three songwriters of such pedigree get together to produce an album, we should all take notice.
